Fitting instructions are available in several languages on our Support pages.
Cipa 35215 mirrors were original equipment on early Citroen Ami 8 and on a few other French classic cars. They were usually painted a light silvery-grey. They are prone to rusting and so it is often difficult to see the reference number. More recently however, very poor quality chrome-plated copies of this mirror have been commonly sold as cheap replacements for many classic Citroens, Peugeots, & Renaults.
Replacing the new glass & surround kit to the poor quality chrome-plated version of the 35215 mirror can be more difficult than any other mirror that we cater for and sometimes a perfect fit may not be achievable. Please bear this in mind when ordering. For this reason, we are considering discontinuing this kit for this non-original mirror, once stock has run out.
Our kit for the 35215 mirror includes a new (convex) mirror glass. Attempting to refit the original (139mm x 88mm)glass in this type of mirror is not recommended as there is insufficient clearance for the MirrorCool surround trim within the housing. This is why our kit includes a new mirror glass, which has been specially made to compensate for this, (138mm x 87mm).
*Convex mirrors give the driver a wider field of view, however this also means that images in the mirror appear to be further away than they actually are. This information is not printed on the glass and so may not be suitable for some areas outside the EU, where this may be a legal requirement.
